That doesn't bode well for folks who would use run of the mill non-premium access, would it? Wouldn't you think that natural market forces would keep non-premium access at pretty much the same speed while speed and bandwidth would increase on the premium side? How long before the non-premium access completely drops out of the picture?

A nearly perfect analogy would be a comparison between broadcast television and cable television. What sorts of innovations have we seen on the broadcast side in the past 25 years? And how many on the cable side, now that consumers are paying to have the signal piped directly into the home? How many people could put up with rabbit ears today?

It disgusts me that people can't see this bullshit coming a mile away.
